landfill gas management Applications

  • Premium

    Portable and fixed gas analysers for landfill gas field management

    Careful management of the many boreholes across a landfill gas field can optimise the gas yield and therefore the power generated from the gas.

  • Mined Landfill

    Mining landfill is an innovative practice, which is a paradigm shift in waste management, where landfills can be considered storage of feedstock for waste to energy plants such as Gasplasma®. It works by: Extracting buried waste / Recovering valuable recyclates: glass, metals, hard plastics / Returning land for alternative uses / Eliminating greenhouse gas emissions caused by decomposing wastes

    Methane and Carbon Dioxide Sensing for Landfill Applications

    Application: In March 1986 an explosion destroyed a bungalow adjacent to a landfill site in Loscoe, Derbyshire. Subsequent measurements showed that 150-200 cubic meters of gas per hour were being generated by landfill waste. This event triggered a change in the way the waste industry considered and regulated gas generated at landfill sites; resulting in the landfill regulations of 2002, and in particular LFTGN03: the Guidance on the Management of landfill Gas.

  • Flaring Solutions for the Landfill Industry - Leachate Evaporation

    Increased concern for the environment has led to new opportunities for landfills to better manage their waste gas. ABUTEC works with the landfill industry to ensure that leachate evaporation is handled in the most efficient way possible. ABUTEC’s high temperature enclosed combustors meet state and federal regulations for burning landfill waste gas at a minimum of 99% destruction and removal efficiency (DRE), meaning almost 100 percent of the vapor to be destroyed is converted to CO and water. These combustors are of high quality, flexibility, low emissions, CSA-approved and able to burn very low calorific gas. When combined with a heat exchanger, the unit can efficiently evaporate the leachate eliminating the need for expensive trucking or disposal.

  • Wastewater treatment solutions for anaerobic sludge digestion sector

    Anaerobic digestion is a series of processes in which microorganisms break down biodegradable material in the absence of oxygen, used for industrial or domestic purposes to manage waste and/or to release energy. It is widely used as part of the process to treat wastewater, like Upflow Anaerobic Sludge Blanket (UASB) reactors. As part of an integrated waste management system, anaerobic digestion reduces the emission of landfill gas into the atmosphere. Anaerobic digestion is widely used as a renewable energy source because the process produces a methane and carbon dioxide rich biogas suitable for energy production, helping to replace fossil fuels. The nutrient-rich digestate which is also produced can be used as fertilizer. The digestion process begins with bacterial hydrolysis of the input materials in order to break down insoluble organic polymers such as carbohydrates and make them available for other bacteria. Acidogenic bacteria then convert the sugars and amino acids into carbon dioxide, hydrogen, ammonia, and organic acids. Acetogenic bacteria then convert these resulting organic acids into acetic acid, along with additional ammonia, hydrogen, and carbon dioxide. Finally, methanogens convert these products to methane and carbon dioxide.
